Water-loving kids will have a new toy at Lions Park in West Liberty next summer. Fundraising started in February and construction of a Spray N Play Splash Pad behind the old water plant at the park is scheduled to start Nov. 13, weather permitting.
If all goes well, by next Memorial Day kids will be getting drenched under spray nozzles, an umbrella and a dump bucket on a 1,400-square-foot splash pad adorned with a bird, a frog and a crab, all friendly and not real.
For now, plans are for a brushed concrete surface. If another $20,000 is raised, an improved surface will be installed initially or at a later date. The additional funds also will go toward installing the water lines and electricity.
